The new update finally introduces the highly anticipated Quad Rocket Launcher, a weapon that had been teased by data miners for a weeks and was confirmed by Epic Games earlier this week. The first footage of the Quad Launcher in action can be viewed here.

Disco Domination has also been added as a new LTM. Players will be asked to: "Break out your best moves and take control of the dance floor in this new Limited Time Mode."

But arguably the most exciting development to come out of the new update is the fact that the incredibly popular, and rare, Skull Trooper skin, which is now part of a customizable Skull Squad set!

If that still isn't enough to whet your appetite, data miners have already started to get to work on the new files and leak a number of upcoming skins and cosmetics which continue the Halloween theme.

For more information about the latest update, including all of the technical information about the Quad Launcher, check out the full patch notes below:

GENERAL 

PERFORMANCE

  • We addressed a disk performance issue on Xbox One which was causing buildings and cosmetics to load in slowly. This will also reduce load times. 
    Please note: This fix will result in a larger patch download than usual (around 10GB).

BATTLE ROYALE

LIMITED TIME MODE: DISCO DOMINATION

Summary
It's time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor. The team that fills their meter the fastest by capturing and defending the dance floors will win the match!

Mode Details

  • Two teams of fifty players.
  • Respawning will be turned on until the third (last) storm circle.
  • Five dance floors will appear on the map whenever the storm is not moving. 
  • Emoting on a dance floor when no enemies are present will raise a disco ball in the center of the floor, and capture it for your team.
    • The more friendly players dancing on a floor, the faster it will be captured. 
  • Once a floor is captured, it will begin filling the team’s “dance bar” on the HUD, until either an enemy stands on it or the current storm timer ends and the storm begins to move. The first team to fill their dance bar to 100% will win the match.
  • The dance floors in the later stages of the match fill the bar more quickly, so don't give up if your team is behind!
  • It is not possible to build on or over the dance floors, but they can be protected by surrounding them with a fort.
  • Glider redeploy is activated in this mode, press jump while falling to use your glider.
  • This mode uses 50v50 levels of loot and resources.
